programs that specify the information processing activities required for the completion of specific tasks of computer users. examples are electronic spreadsheet and word processing programs or inventory or payroll programs

application software


a programming language that utilizes symbols to represent operation codes and storage locations

assembler language


specialized software applications intended to support the development of software. CASE is an acronym for computer-based software engineering

CASE tools


a method of computing in which an individual or an organization makes use of another organization excess computing power or data storage capacity

cloud computing


the use of microcomputers, laser printers, and page makeup software to produce a variety of printed materials that were formerly produced only by professional printers

sending and receiving text messages between networked PCs over telecommunications networks. e-mail can also include data files, software, and multimedia messages and documents as attachments

electronic mail (e-mail)


programming languages that are easier to use than high-level languages such as BASIC, COBOL, or FORTRAN. they are also known as nonprocedural, natural, or very high-level languages

fourth-generation languages (4GL)


programs that can perform information processing jobs for users from all application areas. for example, word processing programs, electronic spreadsheet programs, and graphics programs can be used by individuals for home, education, business, scientific, and many other purposes

general-purpose application programs


software to support and enhance the communication, coordination, and collaboration among networked teams and workgroups, including software tools for electronic communications, electronic conferencing, and cooperative work management

high-level language


see hypertext markup language



software that combines the ability to do several general-purpose applications (such as word processing, electronic spreadsheet, and graphics) into one program

integrated packages


an object-oriented programming language designed for programming real-time, interactive, web-based applications in the form of applets for use on clients and servers on the Internet, intranets, and extranets



a programming language in which instructions are expressed in the binary code of the computer

machine language


software that helps diverse software programs and networked computer systems work together, thus promoting their interoperability



the concurrent use of the same computer to accomplish several different information processing tasks. each ask many require the use of a different program or the concurrent use of the same copy of a program by several users



a programming language that is very close to human language. also called very high-level language

natural language


an object-oriented programming (OOP) language used to develop programs that create and use objects to perform information processing tasks

object-oriented language


the main control program of a computer system. it is a system of programs that controls the execution of computer programs and may provide scheduling, debugging, input/out control, system accounting, compilation, storage assignment, data management, and related services

operating system


a software package that helps end users store, organize, and retrieve text and numerical data in the form of notes, lists, memos, and a variety of other forms
